The two-storey building is nicely designed and the collection is carefully curated. There are a few outstanding pieces of Greek pottery and the Head of Apollo is absolutely gorgeous.

Wow. Just wow. It was a cold and snowy day and I was looking for something not more than a short walk from our rental. The Museo Archeologico Provinciale was convenient, near the bank where we had to go anyway, and, most importantly, open. Now...More

The museum is well worth a visit. The goods included in the exhibit were interesting for the similar yet different craftsmanship. Unfortunately the major attraction of the exhibit, a bronze head of Apollo, was on loan to China, but we still enjoyed the other exhibits.
